Coloured pyrex Fire-King bowls

Coloured pyrex Fire-King bowls

I love the colours of these Fire-King pyrex bowls! Aren’t they great? And the black trim around the rim accentuates the bright yellow and red. There’s a bit of wear to the paintwork, and the bowls aren’t the largest, but it makes sense to have all sorts of different sized bowls in your kitchen, so I’m sure that you’ll still get plenty of use out of them.

A very handsome pair that are going to look fabulous sitting on your kitchen shelf!

Dimensions: Medium bowl – 9cm tall x 18cm in diameter; Small bowl – 7.5cm tall x 15cm in diameter

Price: R180 for the pair

How sweet are these jade Fire-King mixing bowls? I love the colour – it’s such a classic colour for vintage kitchenalia – and the swirls in the glass make it extra special! There are one or two small marks that show up as specks of white (see pics under ‘more’), but on the whole the bowls are in good nick for their years!

Dimensions: Medium bowl – 18cm in diameter x 8.5cm tall; Small bowl – 15.5cm in diameter x 7cm tall

Price: R140 for the pair

Fire-King Pyrex Dish – SOLD

Retro Fire-King dish

How great is the colour of this Fire-King oven dish?! It reminds me a lot of the Le Creuset flame design, but is probably even a bit more intense! There’s a bit of wear to the paintwork that’s not visible in the photos, but on the whole it’s not in bad condition for its years.

This is a very striking piece of cookware that can go straight from your oven to your dining room table – provided that you have a nice retro trivet to protect your tabletop!

Price: R130

Large Fire-King Batter Jug – SOLD

I’ve always loved these over-sized 1950s Fire-King pyrex jugs! I have to say, I love the jade version even more, but I definitely wasn’t going to turn my nose up at a plain white version, especially given how seldom they come up for sale! I love how large they are – they make for a smallish bowl, but a really large jug (if you know what I mean?). This version is in pretty decent nick, with only a few marks here and there – for its age I think it’s nice and clean.

A great accessory for any aspiring cooks out there. This would make the perfect pancake bowl – just mix and pour!

Dimensions: 19.5cm in diameter (at its widest) x 10cm tall

Price: R120

Blue Fire-King Snack Dish – SOLD

I’ve always thought that this Fire-King design has a serious Indian feel to it – it’s definitely very differently to most Pyrexware that you come across! It comes in white and gold, and blue* and gold, and I don’t think I have to say which is my favourite! There’s some slight wear to the gold trim, but otherwise this snack dish is in excellent condition.

A beautifully kitsch piece of vintage pyrexware.

*The blue glass is called azurite.

Dimensions: 28cm long x 19cm wide x 3.5cm high

Price: R120

Fire-King Pyrex Bowl – SOLD

There’s nothing fancy about this pyrex Fire-King bowl, but it’s in great nick, is a nice decent size and has a pattern that I’ve never seen before, and one that I quite like! To be honest I wouldn’t have thought that this style of illustration would appeal to me, but the colours are so great, and the design, which has a bit of a retro flavour to it, seems to really suit the bowl!

An attractive and practical piece of pyrexware that I’m confident you’ll get plenty of use out of.

Dimensions: 14cm tall x 22cm in diameter

Price: R110
